                                                          HANGAR SPACE & FUEL
Hangar space is FREE.
Midwest Corporate Air has graciously sponsored us again this year and we have sole use of their large corporate hangar, 7-25. In the past, most planes have fit just fine in here. If there are any issues, we'll work with you to find a place to put your plane to bed; we're a creative bunch and space should not be an issue at the contest.

Fuel is available on the field and is competitively priced.

2015 Ohio Open - Bellefontaine, OH - August 28-29

The weather was kinder to us this August and we finally were able to have our yearly contest. With 13 pilots flying a dozen airplanes the event was smaller but efficient. All but the Intermediate and Advanced Unknowns were flown on Friday with time to spare, giving everyone plenty of time to relax and study their programs for Saturday. 

Thanks to all the volunteers who came out and made this year's Ohio Open a success!

2014 IAC East Championship (Ohio Open), Bellefontaine, OH

This year we were fortunate to be able to host the IAC East Championship in conjunction with our usual annual contest, the Ohio Open. Participation was excellent, and though bad weather made arrivals interesting, we had a full field of five categories. 

Every category flew at least three flights, with Advanced and Unlimited flying a second Unknown. We experimented with a Free Unknown and the final sequences are available below. 

Check out our recap video created by our friends at Barden Aviation and see the winners in each category below. And thanks to the great folks at Bellefontaine airport and Midwest Corporate Air...they went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly! Be sure to stop by if you're in the area.
